Hello,

I'm wondering what to do with the RTL testcases in SVG1.1F2, which are  
affected by the clarified wording for RTL text alignment in SVGT1.2.

This affects this test:

   http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.1F2/test/svg/fonts-glyph-02-t.svg

which has a counterpart in the SVGT1.2 testsuite:

   http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.2T/test/htmlObjectHarness/fonts-glyph-02-t.html

For reference, see definitions of 'text-anchor' in SVG1.1[1] and  
SVGT1.2[2], and the sections on bidi handling[3][4]. FWIW I think 1.2T  
conveys the intent of the SVG 1.1 spec, so I think backporting the changes  
made for the RTL text tests in the 1.2T testsuite to the SVG1.1F2  
testsuite would be reasonable.

Cheers
/Erik
